Ate at Tao last night, food was excellent! Service was horrific! Waited over an hour for a table when we made a reservation a month in advance. Server was trying to rush us out throughout the entire meal. When we were still eating, he kept coming up to us and asking us if we were done. "Um, hello idiot... I'm still holding my chopsticks in my hand. Does it look like I'm done?" This continued through the night so we decided to stay longer just to make a point. We kept ordering drinks and he kept trying to bring us our check. Unreal! There was actually a line to get in the ladies room. It, literally, took 15 minutes. You think a place this size would have more than 1 bathroom. Definitely touristy... which is annoying because they're so obnoxious, ill mannered and poorly dressed. Will order take out from here next time.
